I-Cord Button Loops

When finishing the edges of a sweater with I-Cord, consider making loops as you join the I-Cord. Use these loops as button closures.a

Crochet Loops

Using the same idea as the I-Cord Button Loops above, use Crochet to create button loops.
In this example I'm working single crochet along the edge of the knitting, adding chains to form button loops at the same time.
